Memories in Mutliprocessor Systems

Memories in Multiprocessor Systems

1 In 1943, the chairman of IBM predicted a world market for no more than five computers.

Although Watson is well known for his alleged 1943 statement: "I think there is a world market for maybe five computers," there is no evidence he ever made it. See this wikipedia entry on the subject.

matrix math extensions (MMX) in Pentium processors

It is not clear what MMX really stands for. One can find MultiMedia eXtension, Multiple Math eXtension, or Matrix Math eXtension. However, it is likely a trademark by Intel with no specific meaning. See this wikepedia entry on the subject.
